Empowering Families – School Choice on Parents’ Terms
April 7, 2017
The era of students defaulting to one assigned neighborhood school is on the decline. Parents are now empowered to choose a school from among multiple options. Family empowerment in a choice environment only exists with equitable access to school information, clear information on school options and application procedures, and a commitment to family support throughout the process.
Join Camden Enrollment and Denver Public Schools as they discuss their journey to increase parent participation in their district’s school selection and enrollment process. Get into the nuts and bolts of how these districts are engaging their parents to select the schools that best fit their children.

Engaging external and internal stakeholders
This webinar is geared toward administrators in school system which offer some form of choice – from intra/inter-district transfers to magnet schools and other programs, to an integrated, unified enrollment system.
